Massachusetts Innovation nights, a self-described “Science Fair for Adults”, will be held at the Charles River Museum of Industry in Waltham, MA. For those of you not familiar with Waltham, MA, it is located on the Charles River, and is the “Birthplace of the Industrial Revolution”. Also known as the “Watch City” due to the longtime presence of the now-defunct Waltham Watch Company, which not many people know created the instrumentation for the Apollo lunar landers!
From the Mass Innovation website:
Mass Innovation Nights (MIN) is designed to provide Massachusetts-based innovators with ways (both online and in the real world) to connect with the media, the marketplace and each other.
Held once a month at the Charles River Museum of Industry & Innovation, in Waltham near Route 128, the Launch Parties are FREE to presenters and open to the public. The live events showcase great new products produced by local companies. Attendees — you get in free too, all we ask is that you help spread the word about cool new products that you see at MIN events. If you don’t blog, or Tweet (#MIN), or Facebook, tell a neighbor or a friend (yes, in person, you know, talking…)
MassInnovationNights.com allows companies large and small to showcase their new products to an audience of social media enthusiasts, mass media and potential customers. MIN attendees will be blogging, Tweeting, Flickr’ing, Qik’ing and whatever’ing — helping you to get the word out about your new product — even if YOU don’t have a marketing team of your own. MIN live events are an exciting and fun-filled opportunity for networking, talking with the product team, and perusing the latest technology and innovative products Massachusetts has to offer.
Product Managers, Product Developers, Marketing and PR
Submit your new product announcements and commit to presenting your products at the live events. There is NO charge for presenting. This is a first come-first served type situation for the first few events. Eventually we’ll get a voting system on the site.
Attend Free Events
Visitors to the site RSVP for the FREE live events (second Wednesday of every month) held at the Charles River Museum of Industry and Innovation in Waltham (free wireless too!) and can peruse the list of already committed attendees in order to make plans for networking. MIN is great for connecting job seekers and recruiters.
All we ask is that you help spread the word about the event and any great product that catches your eye. (Yes, it’s Karma-time! We throw a fun party — and there will undoubtedly be after-parties up and down Moody Street — and all we ask in return is that you support Massachusetts-made products by helping to spread the word about them.)”
